[UPDATE]

California approves bill to extend provisional permits, curtail illicit cannabis firms

The California Legislature approved – and Gov. Gavin Newsom signed into law – a marijuana regulatory package that includes both an extension for provisional business licenses and a new tool for regulators to crack down on unlicensed growers and retailers.

[UPDATE ENDS]


On June 11, 2019 the California Senate approved an amended version of Assembly Bill AB-97 effectively allowing state agencies to issue provisional licenses to all cannabis operators -- including those who do not currently hold a temporary license. Under the Medicinal and Adult-Use Cannabis Regulation and Safety Act (MAUCRSA), which regulates the licensure of cannabis in the state of California, only those who held or hold a state temporary license for the same premises and commercial activity applying for were eligible to obtain a provisional license prior to the recent amendment of AB-97. The new legislation will allow new cannabis businesses who have not received temporary licenses from the state to directly apply for a provisional license following approval from their local jurisdiction.
